Van Halen Shudders

Okay, so maybe Eddie Van Halen isn’t quaking in his shoes just yet, but I’ve been presented with an idea which I’m actually considering. Someone wrote me through my Bandmix page, asking me if I’d be interested in playing guitar with their band. I’m thinking maybe I’ll give it a crack if they actually write… Continue reading Van Halen Shudders

New Looks & Vampires

I’m trying to get my head screwed on straight so that I can get down to the business of writing. The general plan is to knock out at least one chapter of Crewe today, and try to churn out four or five over the weekend. The old boy has been tormenting me lately, so we’re… Continue reading New Looks & Vampires

Turkey Holocaust Day

I’m about to go to bed. Have a nice, warm glow around the edges. Mama won’t be happy to know it, but Victoria and I enjoyed an evening on the couch, sipping Jack Daniels, of all things.

Kids & Kubs

Sitting in the bleachers at North Shore Park here in Saint Petersburg, Florida, watching the gentlemen from the Kids & Kubs baseball league warm up. A few have wandered to their cars. I don’t know if they’re getting ready to play or if they already have. Actually, as I was writing that, they fanned out… Continue reading Kids & Kubs

Crewe's Song

You’ve got to judge the empty spaces Before you slip between their sights. Chattel sometimes feel you coming. They sense the breath before the bite. So if you need a valid reason, Keep in mind the need to feed. Something always has to suffer. Something always has to bleed. Rise up! Take hold! White heat!… Continue reading Crewe's Song

Dan Rather’s Lawsuit Shows the Role of the Republican Party in Inquiry

Most people wouldn’t remember it, but back in the heady days of the Republican rampage, when the G.O.P. controlled the White House, Congress and, some would say, the Supreme Court, the so-called “Liberal media” was bending over backwards to accommodate the Far Right and the then-perceived rightward shift in social attitudes. One of the casualties… Continue reading Dan Rather’s Lawsuit Shows the Role of the Republican Party in Inquiry

Wrath of the Lich King

I’d be remiss if I didn’t write a few things about Wrath of the Lich King. For those of you who might not know what that is, it’s the new expansion for the online game World of Warcraft (which some of you may know that I play – mainly on Aerie Peak, with my warlock… Continue reading Wrath of the Lich King
